DIY Silk flower wall



Since I just moved recently, the majority of wall space in my apartment is still devoid of color- an uninspiring white. Unfortunately, my lease dictates that I'm not allowed to paint... booooo... if you rent too, you probably can relate. So instead of buying a hundred pieces of art, I'm toying with the idea of hanging silk flowers on a wall with masking tape (as pictured above) for a super easy DIY flower wall. Stores such as Jo-Anne Crafts, Michaels and the local dollar store have these faux flowers for uber cheap. That said, this project won't cost much as long as the chosen wall isn't huge.


What do you think of the look: yay or nay? Should I try this at home, kids? Leave your comments below.

  4. Looks so pretty and unique, Afloral.com has hundreds of closeout stems that would be perfect for this type of project! Many of these stems are less than a dollar, so you could get a whole bunch for a low price, good luck :)

  7. This is an awesome solution to that no-paint rule, I must share this with the bf, he's got these very drab walls - can't wait to see how this translates onto your wall :)

    1. yea it's definitely an option, Or, if he finds the flowers too feminine, he could always use old cds with that blue sticky stuff
